French lesbian kidnapped by her 'anti-gay' family
by Joshua Melvin
A young French lesbian was dragged away from the home she shared with a friend and assaulted by armed members of her conservative, religious family opposed to her 'lifestyle', the French media reported.
Six devoutly Muslim relatives of a 22-year-old French woman drove 1,000 kilometres to forcibly remove her from a life "they were opposed to," but were stopped by police, according to reports.
The young woman fled her family in Strasbourg, in eastern France, April 24 to go live with a female friend on the other side of the country in the tiny Pyrenees village of Vieuzos. She'd apparently ran away after her relatives tried to force her into an arranged marriage.
